BitTorrent 6 Beta is the same as µTorrent 1.7

BitTorrent 6 Beta Build 3495 is the same as µTorrent 1.7.2 Build 3458 Stable

µTorrent 1.7.2 Build 3458 Stable vs. BitTorrent 6 Beta Build 3495

By comparing the source of BitTorrent for Windows latest Beta 6 with µTorrent 1.7 latest stable, we come to the result that this two clients are the same. They are very similar. The following points are just the differences:

BiTorrent v6 Beta:
- Icons (incl. Vista Icon)
- Discover loacl peers "Multicast"
- integrated weblinks (Torrent Search engines)
- Homepage
- some Dialogs incl. "About" screen Message
- User Agent ID: bittorrent600B
- comes with a Setup Pack

New is in BitTorrent Version 6 a second application called DNA.exe a local Proxy (Delivery Network Accelerator).

The dna.exe keeps running even if you close BitTorrent, Task manager can kill the process manually (dna.exe use about ~7 to 14 MB RAM resources)
BitTorrent works without dna.exe fine. dna.exe is located in subfolder \Program Files\BitTorrent_DNA\dna.exe. Try to rename, delete or move this file.

The control Panel

µTorrent 1.7.2 is eXe compressed with UPX v.3.00 by default.
BitTorrent 6 Beta Build 3495 for Windows is with PECompact v.2.79 eXe compressed.

BitTorrent 6 Beta Build 3495 seems to be newer and a bit faster as the older µTorrent 1.7.2 Build 3458 and works on more trackers cause uT 1.7.x Builds are almost blocked.
